lyrics

#IfTheyGunMeDown

Verse 1
If they gun me down today – Don’t you listen to the things that they’ll say
Don’t trip off of them pics they show -In your heart you already know

Chillin' in the park - He fell asleep – Minding his own – Keeping it Peace
For the life of me – I think spitefully - I can’t see why he pulled his heat

She was just standing on the porch - He was just taking out the trash
Devil showed us what life is worth – His little body fell – When she heard the blast

They just left him on the ground – Blood pouring out of him from the round
The Shot that was heard throughout the town - We at war and it’s going down

He was just walking from the store – Didn’t know what he had in store
I’m eating my evidence here’s the proof – His Hands was up devil why u shoot?

Baby girl sleeping on the couch – How can I help you? What’s this about?
Baby girl shot right through her blouse – My mistake – Nigga wrong house

He just stopped a fucking fight – Hands off - What gives you the right
Woke up this morning and saw the light - But he won’t make it through the night

Fuck u talking about he’s a cop – He live right there – that’s his block
Patted him down, Found his glock - 28 shots from a traffic stop

"If they gun me down - Nigga burn it down!" (8x) Chorus

Verse 2
If they gun me down – Then burn it down
Try 2 make a deal - Turn it down

Fuck Snitching Al & Messy Jesse
Picket signs they don’t impress me

Politricks & Apologists
It’s like Palestine & the Gaza Strip

Gate Keepers & the Poverty Pimps
It’s Revolution – Here take a glimpse

Calm down - Wait on the law
U ain’t see what you thought u saw

You ain’t hear what u thought u heard
What the jury said after they conferred

His hands was up – He couldn’t breathe
But Niggas lie – & we disbelieve

It’s open season if u Black
I guess it’s time to start fighting back

I guess time that we separate
We're living lies – & breeding hate

When they asked me why'd u flee the scene
Protect your life by any means

When they ask you why'd u resist arrest
Cuz mama said 'Fight to death!'

It’s time to unify - Man Fuck yo gang!
They killing us Brotha Fuck that chain!

Get your mind right girl – Fuck your brain!
We crying out & they're like - Fuck our pain!

We do the shit Gat to ourselves
Yeah We do the shit and we go 2 jail,

They do the shit then they get off!
Your attempts at justice these devils scoff

This is the hate that hate produced
U should’ve locked the cage – Now the Lion’s loose

Should've locked the cage - Now the Lion's loose
